Crisafulli, Paul

Paul Crisafulli, of Bridgewater, and formally of Medway, passed away on Friday, August 25, 2023, at the Deutsches Altenheim German Centre in West Roxbury after a lengthy illness. He was 80 years old. Paul was born in Boston on December 31, 1942, and was the son of the late Joseph and Ernestine (Ionnilli) Crisafully. Growing up in West Roxbury, Paul attended and graduated from Roslindale High School. He decided to further his studies and attend the Boston Architectural Center, where he earned a Certificate of Architecture.

Paul enjoyed spending time with his family and his trips to Milford, NH and to Hampton Beach. He especially loved to travel with his wife Heather. They were fortunate enough to experience trips to Hawaii, the Caribbean, Europe, and many places in the Untied States. However, they would always return to Ocean Park, ME. Later in life, Paul became an avid home chef and cooked many memorable meals for his family and friends.

    Paul was a friend who was supportive in anything I was doing. Being an architect, he related to many of my projects to rebuild mine and Sheri’s house. His smile was very warm to all he greeted. He was very active in church activities. He took on many leadership roles. Paul was one of the leaders of the men’s breakfast small group. This group provided fellowship amongst men who may not have reached out on their own to make friends. I will always remember him as a good friend, and although he may not have realized it, he spread Christian values among us.

    May he rest in the peace he deserves.
